I'm Back! Did I Miss Anything?

I had a wonderful time during the weeks away from home. We had no car trouble, and each flight was relatively smooth during our vacation. We had a grand time the week of our State Convention. Each lesson, sermon, inspirational talk and presentation was outstanding. Our new Minister's Wives President did a fantastic job during her "first" annual address. I am the outgoing President that served nine years and I was in charge of our "love in action" portion of the program for our president. The ladies went beyond what was asked of them to shower her with gifts and money. Our President's recommendations during her message included electing me as President Emeritus of the Minister's Wives Auxiliary. I was surprised and honored as they carried the motion to except her request. Please be in prayer for our convention President, Dr. A.S. Johnson who at the time of the convention was in ICU suffering with the aftermath of a stroke. He is presently in a medical rehab facility. God bless 1st. vice president, Dr. K.W. Tillmon, 2nd vice president, Dr. W.L. Pullam, and 3rd vice president, Dr. R. Stewart for moving the convention forward during our session in the absence of our beloved President. We were truly blessed.

What can I say about my time in Vegas. WOW!! I had a terrific time. I didn't do anything unlawful in the state of Nevada or immoral. I did win $145 by accident (long story). There were six of us that was in fellowship there and we all agreed that it was well worth the time and money we spent. The fellowship was priceless. One tiny little issue....my arthritis in my right knee was on the rampage. The last two days I was on a walking cane and in much pain. I took advil and kept up with the group. That's all I'm saying about Vegas. What happens there, stays there. I will try to post photos soon.

Glad to know all is well here at home. Tony must have done a good job keeping you all in line. I did cheat and looked in on you all a couple of times real quick. A snitch (not Lance) told me that Fitts acted up a little bit but it all resolved itself peacefully. So glad that each sermon seemed to be dynamic as usual by each outline that I read and your comments to each other, not that I am an expert (lol).

Thank each of you for your comments on my last blog. I was pleasantly amused and drawn closer to each of you. Thank you for your prayers and can't wait to get back into your lives and giving my "two cents worth" Thank you also for being in my life. Reading the comments of my last blog, it seems as though another Brother wants to become a son of mine. It is perfectly ok with me Bro. Wilson. Although, being that you are REAL close to crossing over to age 50, we might have to settle for just being siblings instead. I will let you and my sons decide which. What do you all think? A son or a sibling?

Oh yes, the answer to the question raised in my blog subject is....Yes, YOU!

having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all

Mother, we missed you dearly but glad to hear you had a good time. I tried to behave myself while you were gone but I couldn't help it (Lance & Spoon provoked me) :-).

Great post! I am looking forward to more interaction.

Love you much,

DeAntwan Fitts

Glad you made it back and safe.

Pastor Kevin L. Pullam said...

Hey Mom... So glad that you made it back. As you already know, there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't miss you all. Most of all, I was VERY nervous about you leaving with the knee problem. But, I am glad that you all had that time to relax and kick back. It's a joy to know that you had a wonderful time.

I will be looking forward to all the catching up we will do on the blog. I have some catching up to do myself.

We prayed for you and the travelers and I am glad you made it back safely.

Hope your knee is feeling better now, and Barry....well, my vote is for a son.

Somebody better tell Spoon and McGhee they need to check in. I have heard from everybody except them. Maybe they have a good excuse.


Don't make me come out there!!

Hey mom, I think Barry needs to be added to the "son list".

I always wanted a large crew of brothers in case something went down I would have pleny of back up.
